Several “articles” refer to student protests in 1968 at the Essex University, Liverpool University, and the London School of Economics. A mixture of text, cut-ups, and détourned comic strips (OCLC)
“According to an interview with T.J. Clark (Power to the People, 2013) “In 1968 Essex University hosted a dreadful “revolutionary festival” with Godard and co. in attendance. A group of naysayers produced something called the Manifesto of Rationalism in hopes of spoiling the party, and I remember that my contribution was a strip cartoon beginning with a quote from Lewis Namier: ‘Liberty is the fruit of slow growth in a stable society.'” Clark goes on to express sincere hope that the item won’t be recovered for future scholars to examine.” (Arthur Fournier Rare Books)
